Originally a remake of the Team Fortress modification for Quake. Team Fortress Classic features over nine character classes - from Medic to Spy to Demolition Man - enlisted in a unique style of online team warfare.
This game has to be one of the best FPS (first person shooter) games around. Most of the maps you play on will have capture the flag as the objective of the game, but there are many other different maps with different objectives. For example, the map ''hunted'' gives players two objectives, one for each team. The bodyguards must protect the ''hunted'' and get him into a waiting vehicle. The other team, the assassins, must kill the hunted in order to win the round. There are tons of maps out there available for downloading, giving this game a lot of variety. While playing TFC, you'll notice that all the characters are divided into 9 classes: scout, soldier, sniper, demoman, medic, hwguy, pyro, spy, and engineer. Each of these classes have certain strengths and weaknesses, along with unique abilities. Even though the graphics will be different for each computer, it's still amazing how the life-like the game is. The characters all have unique uniforms, and they each have different faces. They are believable and interesting. The weapons are also very true to real life. Most of them closely resemble their real life counterparts. The other weapons are weapons that don't exist, such as the tazer gun that the engineer uses.The sound effects are awesome. The sound of flesh meeting a sharp, steel knife are so believable that the hairs on the back of your neck will stand. The explosions are loud and sudden, the cries of your team mates are realistic, and the gunfire will make you want to duck. Team Fortress Classic is one of the best FPS games out there, and one of the most addicting, as well. The fun factor is very high, and you won't want to miss out. Happy fragging!
